the irs, nsa, obama care. >> it's not okay that it wasn't known. >> or the commander in chief of the united states. >> it may not be a good look, but i think this is a missed opportunity, right? the vast majority of the people who are not -- who buy their insurance on the individual marketplace are single. those are -- that's a democratic voting bloc, right? almost half of them are below 40 years old. the youngest group is the voting brock. you could have said that and be talk together people who are generally on your side, anyway. so you could have said this and taken away this republican talking point that says -- i'm speaking for the american people. but they're not speaking for the american people. they're speaking for people that are not really affected by this. >> john, the administration says they knew about this, right? >> reporter: well, the administration was told about this. the administration was told about this as the regulations were being written. a from the outside from the insurance industry. b, from the inside from some of their own people. then the question
and that starts right now. >>> the nsa phone tapping scandal deepens and what the president knew about the operation. also tonight, a year after sandy, people who need help rebuilding say they are being left high and dry. >>> later look out for these two, they stepped into the shower and climbed out of jail. we'll update you on the escape and manhunt. >>> first up the spying scandal and the obama care mess. on many occasions and many subjects the president has tried to project an image of hands on leadership and personal accountability. >> the buck will stop with me. >> the buck stops with me. >> the buck stops with me. >> i'm the president. and the buck stops with me. >> the buck stops with me. >> ultimately the buck stops with me. >> tonight, though, where precisely the buck stops is somewhat less than clear. when it comes to the nsa phone spying on angela merkel and other world leaders, the president claims not to have known about it until last summer. another official tells us he was briefed on the details of what the nsa was doing. and late today, dianne feinstein weighed in with
lawmakers went head to head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. for the head of the discussion told me their discussion was frank. you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message. this mass surveillance which has come through the allegations is something that is disturbing to european citizens. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why their strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: and today they had more to talk about regarding spain when they collected data from 60 million phone calls in 30 days, leading to one more u.s. ambassador's summon to explain. european officials say that the surveillance in spain and france only included the metadata. but it is the spying on heads of state that is causing the greatest outrage. they say this does not mean the nsa was going rogue or operating out of bounds, but part of it is to ensure they are getting effective guidance from policymakers. it seems to me they were not getting that effective guidance because they were going ground what the president knew or appeared to have authori

[ overlapping speakers ] >> his relationship with capitol hill? would that be another example for you he leaves it to others? >> if you talk to people on the hill, republicans have a huge amount of hatred. way beyond what it should be. but i think if you talk to democrats you find they find he's disengaged. i have a theory, may be wrong, in the domestic side, i think to a considerable degree in foreign policy, he has centralized power in the white house. he's disempowered a lot of people in the cabinet agencies. they're treated much more like staff than real cabinet officers. he's not the first president to do this. but when he brought power into the white house h
